    Anyone know when the wait list starts coming out or when those who are tabled/deferred get looked at again? Are they going to go through all the people who interview in Dec-End before they re-examine who's left? Interviewed in October and haven't heard a word yet. For that matter, has anyone been rejected post interview?

    If you look at my signature directly below this post, you will see my LizzyM and date of completion for my applications. For schools that review applications in order they are received, it helps people know where they are in the review process if I post I received an interview invitation, or I was rejected.

    For those schools, if I post I was rejected and complete in early October, someone who has not been rejected yet, and who was complete earlier, knows there is the possibility remaining that one will receive an interview invitation, or is at least under serious consideration for an interview. Of course, this is not true for all schools. It is helpful to check the thread for that year, and previous years.

    Idk about additional documents, but they do accept short updates in the form of email. Do you mean like an extra recommendation? I'd contact the admissions office just to be sure

    8-13 and silence from me. They have been rejecting a lot of people over the last few months though, so still being in the running is at least good (maybe)

    They explained at my interview day that what happens is if the first person who reviews your file is unsure as to whether or not to give you an interview you go to a second reviewer and that can go down the line for awhile. Also some reviewers are busy/slow and thus they end up with long waits. The good news is you're still very much in the running!

    Congrats to those accepted! I am interviewing on Tuesday and had a quick question! For those of you who stayed a hotel, what was the best taxi/transport service to get from your hotel to the medical school or from the medical school to the airport? Apparently, the taxi services are not always reliable so I wanted to ask the best way to get from places in Lebanon! Thank you!

    Are we still going with the "no news is good news" concept? Interviews end in March right?
